Notes

General Note
"Originally published in Great Britain in 2019 by 4th Estate, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers." -- Title page verso.
Description
"Each of these startlingly original stories is set in modern Britain. Their characters include a people-trafficking gang-master and a prostitute, a migrant worker and a cocksure estate agent, an elderly musician doubly befuddled by dementia and the death of his wife, a pest-controller suspected of paedophilia and a librarian so well-behaved that her parents wonder anxiously whether she'll ever find love. They're ordinary people, preoccupied, as we all are now, by the deficiencies of the health service, by criminal gangs and other ills. All of their stories, though, are inspired by ones drawn from Graeco-Roman myth, from the Bible or from folk-lore. These witty fables, elegantly written and full of sharp-eyed observation of modern life, are also visionary explorations of potent mysteries and strange passions, charged with the hallucinatory beauty and horror of their originals." --,Provided by publisher.
